Dear Friends,

Greetings from Seva Mandir!

Hope you are well. I like to introduce myself to you. I am Atul Lekhra. I have joined Seva Mandir early this year and I will now be communicating with you through these project reports. I am glad to be a part of this program and look forward to talking to you about all these wonderful projects you are supporting.

Today I want to share with you two stories, one of Gita Bai of Bhichiwada village and another is of Laxmi Devi from Bhilwara village.

Gita Devi:

Immunization camps are organized regularly on the 4th of every month in the Bichiwada village. Gita Bai is a regular visitor to these camps as she has three children who are receiving vaccination. She has 5 month old twins for whom she has not missed any vaccine shot. She is very happy that immunization team comes to her village regularly and she can get her children treated at these camps without worrying about travelling to PHC which is a very difficult task. She tells about her last visit to camp where her son got treated for diarrhea. She also feels good that they are provided with lentil by Seva Mandir after every vaccine shot to her child.

This case of Gita Bai highlights the key role played by camps in providing basic healthcare for children for these inaccessible areas of Udaipur district.

Laxmi Bai:

On 2nd day of every month immunization camp is organized at Bhilwada village. Laxmi devi, a 35 yrs old woman of Bhilwada agreed to visit this camp after a lot of counseling by TBA (trained birth attendant of Seva Mandir). She had heard about vaccination for children but was not aware about need of vaccination in pregnancy. Initially she was not agreeing for TT shot but after lot of explanation by health workers at camp and also after observing that many of other pregnant women of her village are also taking it, she understood its importance and happily agreed for it.

She also underwent ANC check up including Hb, BP etc. she was found to be underweight and was counseled about the diet she should take during her pregnancy. So these camps are not only providing immunization for children but are also very important centers of ANC check up. These camps are creating general awareness among rural and illiterate people about health and clearing their misconceptions. 

Much of this success is also due to your untiring support. It is a great partnership and we hope to continue having you by our side. We really appreciate the trust you have shown in us. Please do let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you again.

Atul Lekhra.
